Keeping Wild Animals Out of Your Garden Pond

Garden ponds are a beautiful way to add life to your backyard. A nice little fish pond with koi and goldfish swimming about, and the sound of a fountain trickling down is great for your outdoor space. But the one problem is that a pond can invite unwanted critters to your backyard; some of which may prey on your fish.
Raccoons are expert swimmers and love fish. They are known to swipe at fish from the edge, or enter the water to get them. Other animals, like snakes or birds, may also hunt your fish. It you notice that you are losing fish, you should consider taking some precautions to defend your pond. A common practice is to utilize a dome-like screen that comes high enough above the water to leave room for the fountain sprays. Clearing brush or shrubs directly next to the pond will reduce the number of hiding spaces a potential predator will have when hunting your fish.
Non-predatory animals may come to your pond without a screen cover. Pests like squirrels, woodchucks, and rabbits may come to drink from the water. This can be a problem, as wild animals might move to live closer to a steady source of water.

Animals Under Your Deck

As warmer weather is approaching, we all want to make use of our backyards. But one thing that could ruin a good barbeque or pool party is a wild animal under the patio or deck. These elevated platforms, while great for entertaining guests, are also good shelters for raccoons, skunks, and more. It is important to make sure that before you invite people over, you get rid of the furry, uninvited residents making camp under your patio space.
Most animals will get under your patio in one of two ways. Either there is a hole in the fencing, or they dug under it. Exclusion and removal, as well as prevention of further pest problems under the patio will depend on the type of entrance as well as the species living below.

Garden Groundhogs

The weather is finally becoming warm and the trees are sprouting leaves. With April Showers behind us, it is time for your garden to start showing some color. But, if you have a groundhog problem, your beautiful garden may be this rodent’s salad.
Groundhogs are a huge problem for experienced and novice gardeners alike. Groundhogs dig up plants, munch on bulbs, and eat up seeds. Groundhogs also dig tunnels through your lawn and garden. These pesky rodents can destroy your beautiful garden, whether you are growing flowers, fruits, herbs, or vegetables. Groundhogs are known to consume most types of plants that are grown in gardens. Young groundhogs go off on their own after about 6 weeks from birth. A groundhog that finds a home near someone’s garden will have a steady supply of food from it and will probably return to it regularly to eat. Groundhogs, in addition to being superior diggers, are also expert swimmers and climbers. Fences are not always effective at stopping these rodents, unless they are set deep into the ground or built with a lip above or below the ground.
